Series I

Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage Environments, was a two-year Education & Training project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities that began January 1, 2010. This project enabled collections care staff in cultural institutions to avoid risks to collections while they support sustainability efforts and pursue opportunities for energy cost reduction. Workshop venues included in this first series were: Yale University Library in the northeast, National Archives at Atlanta in the southeast, Minnesota Historical Society in the Midwest, the University of California Los Angeles Library in the west, and the School of Information at the University of Texas Austin in the south central region.
